Random non sequitur posts catch-all thread

It's weird seeing the brand Tylenol on the shelf at the chemist. That's the American thing.

When I was in York UK and asked for a painkiller, the chemist said "ib-you-prah-fen is in that aisle" and it took me a minute to realize that was "I-byou-pro-fen" to me. I said thanks and started really paying attention to brand names after that.

If you see a house walking around on chicken legs don't go near it. If the house is walking around on any other type of legs it might be okay to go inside. I only heard bad things about chicken leg houses.

Get hooked up with the naproxen sodium, it Aleves my pain pretty quickly

It makes me suicidal in like ten minutes, so... :-/

Remember in 1991 when Joey from Friends starred in an Alanis Morisette pop music video?

No?

Well that’s ok, it only happened in Canada, but now you can relive that exclusively northern experience! You’re welcome!

Thank you for the Northern Exposure!

My Mum used to take Clopidogrel. We called it ‘cloppy-dog-rel.’ when I pronounced it that way in front of a nurse she said it wasn’t the correct pronunciation but every patient said it that way. It’s just too much fun to pronounce it any other way.

Also (I don’t have many more of these.):

Sergent Pinback calling bomb number 19. Do you read me bomb?
Bomb to Sergent Pinback I read you. Continue.
Well bomb, we have about sixty seconds to drop.
[…] Let’s synchronise detonation times. Eeeem. You wouldn’t happen to know when you’re supposed to go off would you?
Detonation in six minutes twenty seconds.
Alright that checks out here. Arm yourself bomb.

[bloop bloop] Armed.

- Dark Star (1974)

One of my favorite scenes from the movie. Pinback is just a wreck of a human being.

He is indeed.

For whatever reason, I started to listen to gregorian chants recently. All the titles are in latin and, funnily enough, Apple Music censors the latin word 'c-u-m' (which means 'with', according to Google translate). Seeing 'c*m' come up on my lock screen makes me laugh each time. I am easily amused, what can I say.

Geez, even at her most 80's pop sound she had something to say.

Story recap so far? Oh my gosh let me tell you. I walked into this building and I’m like, “I was stuck at the bottom of a well. For a long time. I ended up escaping somehow and found my father who looks like a child […] likely due to some sort of temporal time confliction, eem and eem, so we escaped from this place and then the hot dude said, ‘Not on my watch.’ [wags his finger at the camera] ‘Not on my watch Wolf,’ and we duked it out ‘cos this guy was like, ‘It’s clear that this kid isn’t your Dad,’ and that’s why we were fighting. Chopped off my arm. That sh*t flew. Got a robot arm from the man in the room, the man with the feet, and off we go.

I think this one is actually peak Alanis pop... And yeah, it's got something to say too!

Whoa. Yeah the "Too Hot" one is way more pop. "Walk Away" is something... poppy? Pop-ish?

Wow

Canada.

Alex: She justified the nostrils as found poetry Greg.
Greg: Yeah. I heard that.

Someone on Twitter referred to this part of the year as the "Festive Perineum" and I will never know peace again.

(That's the absolutely perfect description, BTW. Taint Christmas, Taint the New Year.)

Ha, yeah, I've noticed that recently too. Though I seem to recall my USA sister-in-law confused about my confusion that Tylenol wasn't a thing here... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

This may be the the most awful yet accurate thing I've ever read.

Raise your words not your voice. It is the rain that makes the flowers grow not thunder.

The rain that brings you here is heaven blessed...

The sky begins to clear and I'm at rest. A breath away from where you are - I've come home from so far...

Martin Brody: Don’t use the fireplace in the den because I haven’t fixed the flue yet.
Ellen Brody: What am I going to tell the kids?
Martin Brody: [Thinks for a moment] Tell them I’m going fishing.

Rory: Oh! What!?
Daniel: Bunting.
Gav: Bunting. I though it was a ghost walking.
Rory: We can’t keep jumping at bunting.

So. It’s the time we’ve all been waiting for. We always look forward to this. It’s the annual summary report on the patron powers from the data analytics department at iFanboy.[…] This is for episodes 700 to 749. September 2019 to September 2020 compiled for Mr J.A.Flanagan and Mr C.E.Kilpatrick […] Total number of powers bestowed this year 153. This compares to 200 the year before. […] Most favoured power types in the last year: light based powers: four. Eric can control ambient light, Patrick’s toes are flashlights, Rusty is invisible only to selfies, SuperGavin can emit any kind of light from his hands. Decontamination powers: four. Ryan’s living space is always dust free, Evangelicar’s shoes are always clean, Matt can remove all stains from anything, Darren can remove all stains also. We duplicated that power. Five body morphing powers: Joe. His blood becomes butterscotch pudding, Matt B can transform all his limbs into foam rollers, Tim can control the growth of his finger and toe nails, he can grow or retract them, Dave can morph into any character previously played by Gary Oldman…

The mystery of life is not a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced.

Numb3rs is MathNet for adults.

Last night, for the first time, I had a dream where I was panicking because I had forgotten to bring a facial mask with me.

I don't know how I feel about that.

I had one of those the other night! I thought they'd gone away for good after I first got vaccinated, but I guess not.

I keep two or three cloth ones in the car and a few disposables just in case. And I still have that nightmare.

We are in the stupidest apocalypse.
